Kevyn Aucoin Eye Lash Curler Review
It is described as,
A slim, stainless steel tool for perfectly curled lashes. Create wonderfully curled lashes with this slim, professional-quality eyelash curler. Its sleek, stainless steel frame provides a firm grip while its curved rubber pad bends lashes to perfection. Plus, you can turn the curler upside down and curl your bottom lashes for a Hollywood-starlet look.
First of all the curling mechanism fits the shape of my eyes perfectly, and without any pinching or discomfort. The red rubber pad also has plenty of cushion allowing for a nice strong squeezing motion- rendering the most fantastic natural looking curled lashes. The grip feels great in the hand, and the curling portion opens up widely enough to make cleaning it very easy. It comes with a backup red rubber pad, but I haven't had to replace it yet. The rubber is very good quality and hasn't even started to show signs of wear, and I have been using it for over a year already. In my opinion there is absolutely no question that a high quality eyelash curler will outperform low-end models. The care with which it is constructed, the overall quality of the materials used, and the attention to the ergonomic details makes all of the difference in the world. I'm just not quite sure why it took me so long to make this discovery!
I know that so many people rave about the Shu Uemura Eyelash Curler, and it has been repeatedly suggested that the Kevyn Aucoin Eyelash Curler is very similar, but I have never used the one by Shu Uemura so I can't possibly make a comparison between them.
Overall assessment: I love it! It is something that I didn't even know that I needed!!
